T, HANKINS, cS^2Ave WATER WAR ZONE CAUSES UNEASINESS PRESIDENT WILSON AND HIS CABINET HAVE THE MATTER UP FOR DISCUSSION. The Claim of Germany That Her Ene mies Are Using Neutral Flags on Merchantmen Will Be Investigated. "Washington. Feb. 6. President Wilson mill his cabinet today discuss ed the possible effects on neutral shipping of the German proclamation declaring as naval war /.ones the water anas surrounding Gr ai Brit ain and Ireland and bordering the north and west coasts of France and a portion of the Xetherlads. Inasmuch as the texl ot the Ger man admiralty's proclamation had not arrived, no conclusions were r'ached and no consensus of opinion develop ed as to what diplomatic steps should he taken by the I nited States gov ernment Should tile communication fail to arrive at it rlin to make the customary inquiry at the German for eign office as to the authenticity of a published report. if the German proclamation when officially transmitted corresponds in phraseology to the report which cam ■ by wireless yesterday, it was suggest ed in executive quarters, that the course of the American gov ‘fitment probably would be to inquire, first, of the German government that meas ures of protection or convoy can be expected by American m reliant ships passing through the designated war zones to neutral ports, and sec ond of the British government as to whether or not i; has issued the al 1 “ged secret order permitting the use of neutral flags by her merchant men. A denial by Great Britain of the ex istanee of the order would be follow ed, it is understood, by an inquiry of the (i.rman authorities as to proof of their charge. The suggestion that neutral flags were being misused caused no little concern among high officials, who said they had heard no reports of it b Tore. It was stated on high authority that the I'nited Stales government probubly would not go further than to seek to establish w bat measures the German navy will tak to aid American ships in passing safely through the war zones and what ef forts will lie made to verify the neu tral character ' of vessels flying til ' American flag The right of a belligerent to de-ig nate a water area as a war zone with in which il is dangerous for neutral craft to venture is a lately recogniz ed principle of International law with the extent of the zone, the degree of menace to neutral vessels and the right to interrupt lawful commerce in the only existing water routes be tween neutral countries, have never been defined. High officials here did not believe, as some German papers bine ittLimat ed, that the (it man government in tends to deliberately destroy neu tral vessels in the war zone. Rules of international law, it was pointed out. call for careful search of a n ultra! vessel to determine how much of its <urgo is contraband and even then th ■ ship can ho destroyed only in rare einerg ncies and on the confi dent assumption that it would have been condemned as a prize While in many quarters the action of Germany was referred to a- a "blockade technically the designa tion of war zones in an entirely dif icrent mailer .Neutral vessels unit r a blockade are absolutely forbidden from entering the blockade areas but under Germany’s proclamation there is no penalty or obstacle directly placed against the passage of a lieu- ; tra! ship through a war /one after the warning againsi the dangers that exist there, in effect, a neutral ves sel enters the dangerous area at its own risk, a situation somewhat analo gous to the mine strewn fields of the Nortli sea. though destruction by a submarine whose nationality could be ascertained would differ In legal con sequences from the explosion of a contact mine, responsibility for Un laying of which might never be de termined. The German adniirality's notice, it was contended at the German em bassy, is the natural result ol the British attitude towards foodstuffs in tended for Germany. It was made plain that the intention of the order, as understood here, is to prevent the entrance of food into Kngland. While none of the neutral ambassies and legations had instructions from their home governments today, it was sug gested that it was unlikely that a change from the policy of protesting in rp-citic cases was discussed in formally In diplomatic quarters but without official sanction. It was staled at the legation of the Netherlands that a conference would be held tomorrow between the minis ter, t hevalier Von Kappard and offie iais of the state department, in order to ascertain the probable action of this government. Officials at the legation xharacter ued the situation as extremely ser ious for all neutrals whose ships or dinarily pass through th - dangei zone and especially for Holland whose en tire coast line is affected. —-■- o~-' ■■■■ DR.

Directly to the west of Warsaw the Russians have assumed the offensive and claim to have crossed tile Hz lira river and to have taken some of the German positions south of Sochaczew. Immediately to the southwest is tlie reinforced army of Field Marshal Von Hindenburg. who is now hurling his forces furiously against tlie Russian lines in an other attempt to drive his wav through to Warsaw, the goal lie lias long sought. Tlie assault led by General Von Hindenburg uas resulted in one of the most furious battles fought since ihe beginning if tlie war. Only meagre news ! is been re ceived to indicate tlie trend of this conflict. Botih sides claim successes but t.l)e reports do not indicate that there has been a i.v decisive turn in the engagement. Tlte latest German official statement re'ers to the operations in the west as consisting mainly of artillery duels. The French war office says that the French artillery lias done some very ef fective work in the valley of the Aisne. In Champagne to the nortli of Beausejour. tthe allies made some slight .progress Thurs day. In Alsace, says the French statement, a German attack to tiie sout hof Altkirch was rej pulsed. A dispatch from Geneva says that General Vanbordungen, stall commander of the German opera tions in Lower Alsace, lias been forced to move his headquarters from a p lace near Altkirch to 'Muelhausen. owing to a bombard ment by allied aviators. State papers and valuables are lie' isr moved from Muelhausen to Frei burg, it is said. Tin* Overseas News Agency of Beilin says that, a second Ger man war loan probably will lie is- , sued the first of 'March and on favorable terms as. it is asserted, the condition of the money mar ket is exceptionally good. Tlte British government lias ac cepted an offer by Australia to furnish another expeditionary force of lO.imo men. This force is in addition to the reinforcements of four thousand men provided monthly. PASSPORT FRAUDS. Federal Grand Jury Returns Two In dictments Charging Conspiracy. New York.
